Trinity News: November 7th

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you are well.  As many of you know I was honoured to be awarded an MBE for services to education in the New Years honours list.  Tomorrow will see me being presented with it at an investiture ceremony in Windsor Castle.  I have to say I am very excited!   Last week in assembly Mrs Berthinussen was sharing with our learners how important it is to set yourself goals and this week our learning power is Have a Go Hamster.  When I was appointed HeadTeacher nearly 20 years my goal was to lead a happy and successful school where everyone feels valued and respected.   I have certainly ‘had, and continue to have, a go’ at doing exactly that.  Being awarded an MBE for pursuing my goal is certainly the icing on the cake and I am indebted to everyone who has worked with me in achieving it.   I look forward to seeing many of you at parents’/carers’ meetings later this week.  I’ll bring my medal if you’re interested in seeing it!

Parents’ / Carers’ meetings – please do sign up using the booking system for a chance to meet with your child’s class teacher. Appointments are available on Thursday evening (Nov 10th) and Friday afternoon (Nov 11th).  

Book Fair – our book fair has returned after a break cue to COVID and a selection of books are available for purchase in school this week, either during parents’/carers’ meetings or at the end of the school day.  Payment is by cash only. The school receives commission on what is sold.

Uniform – last week saw over 50 items of unnamed school uniform items being washed and added to our preloved uniform boxes.   Please do take a minute to write your child’s name on a label.  With a name it is so easy to be returned.  

We do ask that school colours (black, yellow, white and grey) are worn at all times including PE days.  If you wish your child to have a change of clothing for PE they are welcome to bring items to school on the day and change into them.  

Play – as we develop play opportunities we are always on the look out for ‘dressing up’ items.  Costume jewellery, hats, ties, scarves, work vests, high heels, adult dresses etc are always welcome as they encourage imaginative play.   

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes
